Pence to sub for Trump in Wisconsin Saturday


"She has to go to jail", he said.

"He never backed off his pledge to support the Republican ticket", said Byrne spokesman Seth Morrow.

"You know, as I said last weekend, I don't condone what was said and I spoke out against it".

Pence was referring to the Friday afternoon publication by The Washington Post of a story about a 2005 video in which Trump is recorded bragging about groping women without their permission.

Donald Trump said he will carry on as Republican candidate for president - despite numerous calls from Republicans for him to drop out - following the revelation of vulgar remarks he made about women in 2005.

The former representative of Minnesota's 6th congressional district also defended the Trump campaign's decision to invite three women who have accused Bill Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior to Sunday's second presidential debate, saying it was important to remind young voters of the former president's past indiscretions.

Top Trump ally, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, says he still supports the Republican presidential candidate though describe his crude comments as "completely indefensible".

Mr. Ryan stiff-armed the billionaire real estate developer and reality TV star, disinviting him to a joint campaign appearance with the House speaker and telling Republican House members that they are free to pretend Mr. Trump doesn't exist.

Pence ignored shouted questions about Trump, and he was quickly whisked out of reach of the news media.

Donald Trump claimed that Senator John McCain has "the dirtiest mouth in all of the Senate". There was no immediate reaction from McCain, who secured his primary election win in August.

"The speaker is going to spend the next month focused entirely on protecting our congressional majorities", Ryan's spokeswoman, AshLee Strong, said in a statement following an October 10 conference with Republican lawmakers where he told them "you all need to do what's best for you and your district", according to a CNN source.

In an extraordinary party revolt, almost half of all 331 incumbent Republican senators, House members and governors have condemned Trump's lewd remarks on the video, and roughly one in ten has called for him to drop out of the race, a Reuters review of official statements and local news coverage indicates.

Trump promised to be "fighting like hell" until November 8, but expressed frustration with resistance in his own party - especially from Ryan, who announced Monday he would focus on down-ballot races in the home stretch to Election Day.

Meanwhile, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway held a conference call Wednesday with House Republicans who back the GOP nominee.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump unleashed vitriol at Republican party establishment, as party leaders distanced themselves after his leaked lewd comments on women.

The PRRI/Atlantic poll released two days after the second U.S. presidential debate suggested Mrs Clinton holds a 49-38 lead over her opponent. "She came into my territory", he said. He added that he would not vote for Hillary Clinton either. "She failed as secretary of state".
